Now that we're officially in December, it feels about right to talk gifts. I know, the beauty world has been talking gifts / holiday since October, but for me, the holidays just don't feel like the holidays until December rolls around. The beauty world does the holidays exceptionally well, but for my take on a gift guide this year, I've got a few more unique bits that stray from your standard gift set from Sephora.

Okay, I may have lied. I do have one gift set that it totally available from our beloved Sephora, but it also happens to be Canadian. This year I've been making more efforts to add more Canadian products into my routine and life. BITE Beauty is one of those brands and their Agave Treat Trio Mini Agave Lip Mask Set is an adorable way to spread the gift of hydrated lips. The set includes three mini tubes of their popular lip balm in Natural (clear), Maple (light beige tint) and limited edition Candy Cane (light reddish-pink tint.)

Continuing with the Canadian love is a delightful little bath item in the form of Lavami Coffee Body Scrub. I picked this up for myself as the coffee grounds, cinnamon, coffee butter, and vanilla oil formula just sounded too good to pass up. The combination provides a gentle, yet effective scrub that leaves skin exfoliated and lightly hydrated. Plus, it smells pretty incredible.

You know what else smells incredible? The new Farmhouse Fresh Vanilla Bourbon Body Oil will make any vanilla fan swoon with its Madagascar vanilla and and Texas distilled bourbon. The lightweight yet intensely hydrating formula features soybean, jojoba, sunflower and apricot kernel oils along with vitamin e, shea and coca butter to leave skin glowing, silky smooth, and gorgeously scented.

Something a little sparkly is a classic gift idea, but something personalized from oNecklace takes it up a notch. With a huge selection of customize-able jewelry there is literally something for everyone.  Each piece is sterling silver (also available in gold or rose gold plate) you know your gift selections will not only be stylish, but they'll last for years.

I've been loving daintier pieces lately, so the Small Initial Necklace was a perfect pick. The tiny lower case initial is a great size for everyday wear and the option of chain length means you can choose something shorter or longer for layering. If you've got a little one on your list, they also offer a kid's collection which includes the aww inducing Personalized Deer Pendant Necklace. The sweet little fawn silhouette features an initial cutout and is also available on your choice of chain length making it a cute choice for any age. I am far from kid age and I know I'll be sporting this little guy a lot.



A jewellery adjacent option that will woo any nail girl, are the Swarovski crystal encrusted Mont Bleu crystal files. The set of three Black Crystal Nail Files includes a large file (7.68 inches), a medium or standard size (5.32 inches) and a cute mini file (3.4 inches) all decorated in pink, light pink, and fuchsia crystals on a black base. As cute as pink is, it's not for everyone, but Mont Bleu also offers this set in six other colour combos to suit anyone on your list. For anyone who has nails and files them, these are the files to do so with. They're amazing!

If you identify as female, you likely know all too well what it's like to work with men who are... well, to put it nicely, the worst. It's not to say all men in the workplace are awful, but there is a particular type that can make office life less than fun. Sarah Cooper has written a perfectly humorous (and sadly, all too true) satirical guide book to navigating men in the workplace. How to be Successful Without Hurting Men's Feelings illustrates how women can achieve their dreams, succeed in their careers, and become leaders, without harming the fragile male ego. You know, what we all strive to do. It even includes a set of wearable mustaches so you can seem extra man-like once you've read the book and are ready to implement your newly acquired skills.

The holidays just aren't complete without some form of gadgetry involved, and if you or someone on your list loves skincare, the PMD Clean Smart Facial Cleansing Device is a perfect combination. Using PMD's SonicGlow technology, this delivers 7,000 vibrations per minute to not only deeply and gently cleanse, but also work to lift, firm, and tone skin. One side of the soft touch, silicone device is the brush (which never needs replacing, btw) for cleansing, while the reverse features ridges and can be used to massage products onto the skin (think serums, moisturizers etc). How neat is that?!

Okay, I think that just about does it. Do you plan on gifting or asking for any of these items this year?
